On September 6, hundreds of French Armenians gathered in front of

assumed a unified posture over the issue.
“Our steeps need to become more aggressive gradually … Neither
Budapest, nor human rights, nor Azerbaijan, nor Aliyev and only the
Armenian officers, soldiers, Armenian army, the Armenian national
flag must return dignity to the Armenian people. We trust neither
in Hungary, nor the international family, but we also continue to
reclaim justice from both Hungary and the international family,
so that they restore their dignity, the human dignity,” he has said.
ARF-D Armenia Supreme Body representative Armen Rustamyan also
participated in the demonstration in Paris, who had arrived here to
participate in the session of the PACE Community on Human Rights and
“I proposed at the session of PACE to discuss the issue of Safarov’s
extradition and release during a plenary session of the Council of
Europe, which will be held on October 1-5. This is an opportunity,
with which we can present our problem, and this problem is not only
that of Armenia but of the whole international community. Our goal
is reestablishing justice,” Rustamyan has said.
Another, greater wave of protest will be raised in Paris on September
18, when President Ilham Aliyev is to arrive here.
